DUNBAR, W.Va. (AP/WAVY) — A police report says a fugitive from Norfolk died from injuries suffered during a police chase in West Virginia.

The Charleston Gazette Mail reports Dunbar police have been tight-lipped about the March 11 chase, but released the report after the newspaper filed a Freedom of Information Act request.

The report says 31-year-old Daniel Chad Waller of Norfolk, Virginia, was a “wanted fugitive” and gave police a false name during a traffic stop before officers determined his identity.

The report says Waller fled, lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a building. It says he died April 8 due to his injuries.

The report didn’t indicate what charges Waller faced. A Virginia State Police spokeswoman said state law prohibits police from disclosing a person’s criminal record.

10 On Your Side is reaching out to Norfolk Police to confirm if a Daniel Waller, 31, listed on their wanted persons list, is the same individual.
